Ingredients

  • 2 1/2

    cups lukewarm water

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    cups pre-cooked white corn meal (such as P.A.N.®)

  • 1/4

    cup vegetable oil, or as needed

Directions

Stir water and salt together in a bowl. Gradually stir corn meal into water with your fingers until mixture forms a soft, moist, malleable dough. Divide dough into 8 golf ball-size balls and pat each one into a patty about 3/8-inch thick. Heat a SMALL amount of oil in a skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Working in batches, cook corn patties in hot oil until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer cooked arepas to a paper towel-lined plate to drain until cool enough to handle. Slice halfway through each cake horizontally with a thin serrated knife to form a pita-like pocket.
